Why we exist

Principal, Emilio De Stefano established De Stefano & Co to satisfy his passion for people, business and entrepreneurship. Having spent the early part of his career in the defence industry in a multi-national corporate before moving into a senior executive position within a small to medium enterprise, Emilio came to understand the elements of a large organisation that are fundamental to the success of any organisation. Having experienced both aggressive growth and significant consolidation, Emilio appreciates the pressures that owners, directors and senior leaders feel on any given day.


After more than a decade in industry and upon completing an executive program at the prestigious Stanford Graduate School of Business, Emilio knew it was time to take the plunge and in late 2015 established De Stefano & Co which would enable him to share his skillset amongst a wider variety of businesses in need. Since this time, Emilio has steadily grown De Stefano & Co's capability and capacity, bringing on board several highly experienced business professionals who share his same passion for people and business.
